Duct Taped Software

I love this article on the ugliness of complicated (or not so complicated) software in the real world. A games goes open source, and developers are horrified by the code they see. πŸ˜±πŸ˜†

Beautiful. Disgusting.

I’m not surprised at all. Almost every successfully shipped system I’ve seen is full of really ugly code. At some point, you just have to ship that mother. πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ

πŸ‘‰ The truth is that many games are held together by duct tape

“They can buy anything, but they can’t buy backbone”

This speech by Bill Murray as Herman Blume is one of my favorite parts of one of my favorite movies, Rushmore. I was reminded of this speech by the college admissions scandal.

I love that Herman is actually delivering this speech to a bunch of rich boys. And only Max Fischer applauds. πŸ˜†

Take dead aim on the rich boys. Get them in the crosshairs and take them down. Just remember: they can buy anything, but they can’t buy backbone. Don’t let them forget that. Thank you.
